Chapter 3. Changing the Appearance of Text > Formatting Text as You Type

Formatting Text as You Type

Word’s list formatting capabilities are just one example of its ability to intuit how you are going to want to format an element based on what you type. For example, instead of manually creating a line by typing underscores (_) across the length of a page, you can type three consecutive hyphens (-) and press to have Word’s AutoFormat feature draw a single line across the page. Or you can type three consecutive equal signs (=) and press to have Word draw a double line.

In this exercise, you will add a double border using an AutoFormat shortcut. You’ll also inspect the AutoFormat As You Type tab of the AutoCorrect dialog box to see what items Word can automatically format for you.
